The seller of this little scoot built a homemade sidecar for his wife’s dog, who apparently loved to ride in it. It was ridden every summer for the last eight years but now the rig needs a new owner.

The FA50 is a very basic moped that is generally of high quality – though I can’t imagine Suzuki expected any of its customers to throw a hack on this diminutive scoot. The 49cc 2-stroke motor was paired with an oil injection system and it was capable of getting the scoot up to about 28 miles per hour. It notably features a low maintenance enclosed drivetrain (centrifugal clutch, chain, and reduction gear all bathed in oil). For more information on the FA50, check out this post on MopedWiki. Or, find the owner’s manual here.

The seller says the sidecar can be unbolted in about 10 minutes. Find this adorable 3 wheeler for sale here on Craigslist for $1,000 in Ilion, New York.
